    It’s very much on the far end of the spectrum, but a few months ago a girl did an AMA on reddit (casualIAMA, no proof required, so take from it what you will) who breastfed until she was 15. Quoting it: 

    “I stopped when I was 15. I had just recently discovered masturbation and I realized that I was beginning to look forward to it in a less than innocent light. I also started understanding my own sexuality better and didn’t want to taint what was a bonding, calming, comforting thing with my hormones.

    The moment that made me realize that it was actually weird was on the night I stopped, my mom started humping my leg (fully clothed) while I was doing it. That’s when I knew that it was becoming something more and I wasn’t comfortable with that. Neither of us mentioned it again after that.

    For the most part it was more of a relaxation thing. She’d rub my back and I’d be able to fall asleep more easily. It wasn’t until near the end that I started realizing it was beginning become a sexual thing for me.”

    Like I said, no proof required, so could definitely be a troll. She did the AMA because people were asking questions when she mentioned it in a different thread. Very strange.

    @quierajen:  Natural and socially acceptable are two completely different things, so let’s not get them mixed up. If you want to breastfeed for longer than I do, that is your perogative, but I’m sure you can appreciate that not everyone shares that desire.

    For the record, when I stop to think about it, I don’t love the idea of drinking cows milk either, which is why I drink almond milk instead.

    @HonoraryNerd:  That whole thing made my skin crawl, that’s just…ugh.  I don’t think I have the words for that one.

    @FutureMrsHallam:  In this case, the breastfeeding is entirely about the mom and has nothing to do with any benefits for her child.  She’s willing to emotionally cripple her kid to satisfy her perverse need to breastfeed.  

    I think the authorities should pay her a visit.

    @Bridey77:  

    fair enough! But a two year old who can tell you in complete sentences that they are in the middle of a bowel movement should definitely at least make an effort to BE in the same room as a toilet. especially if expelling poop needs a great deal of concentration and/or effort. 

     

    Maybe be kids like that SHOULD be on the breast… If nothing else but to make their poops a little easier…

    This is really her decision, and no one else’s place to judge. It actually pisses me off that everyone is judging her. Like someone else said there are far worse things she could do. Yes I am a breastfeeding mum and very into it.

    thats just ridiculous. IMO Once you can do two out the following three: walk, got a full set of teeth, ask for food its time to get off the tit.

    @Bracelet00:  I tend to agree with your opinions on almost every subject, this one included

    @FutureMrsHallam:  Not my kid, not my boobs, and NOT my choice 

    However, the childs opinon is important because this should be a choice once the kid is old enough to talk. My biggest concern is that the child will have issues with body image and sex later on in life. This ends up needing to be the childs choice, IMO

    @HonoraryNerd:  I got sucked into that thread (thanks for the time-suck! 😉 ) and it’s not actually about breastfeeding. The woman admits that her mom was no longer lactating when they continued to “breastfeed.” The mom would crawl into her bed and the daughter would suck on her breast and sometimes play with her nipple and the mom would moan. There were times the mom did really inappropriate things to her, too. The girl was in an incestuous and therefore abusive relationship with her mother.
